Hourglass of the Gods

Narrow halves of smooth cliff
split dry heavens,
and the asphalt’s abrupt termination
sends the casual river to slip contrast.

Fluttering cottonwood leaves speak to angels,
rising from majestic places of stone.
Pebbles plummet canyon crevices.
Evergreens break the borders of rock and sky.

Life arrows forth from barren boulders.
Sand will surrender its secrets,
to the pines communing on 
flaming walls of layered immenseness.

We glimpse the hourglass of Gods.
Canyons uplifted,
or a river melts,
but it lives before,
and travels beyond!
